In case one of your OpenID provides suddenly disappears, it saves you a lot of hassle from having to email Stack Exchange and proving your identity. Instead, you simply login with the other OpenID and everything continues to work fine.

I think this says everything:

MyOpenID account mysteriously vanished

Occasionally, your OpenID provider (external to Stack Exchange) does something crazy.

Or, occasionally your favorite website might break something subtle ;-) –  Arjan Apr 22 '11 at 21:20
